My mom...

It was 2 years ago today that my wonderful mom went home. :( My heart hurts so much, but I am so glad to know that she is safe at home! She was just the best. Love you tons, and I miss you Mom!!!


So many words, so short the goodbye
there would never be enough time to do it right
Your memory brings me the warmth of joy
and sadness that can make me wish the storm in my heart would break

So I send you these words that got lost before you left
Thank you
not for being perfect, but for being you
for the cheering that brings my heart a smile when it all seems impossible
I can still smell the warmth of your embrace
your voice on a message
For defining unconditional

The things that were never worked through, the grace that made it ok
We still miss you
Maggie still holds the bear you gave her
your memories still roll off our tongues, they come so swift it leaves me breathless

Thank you, for fighting so long
for the moments that surly must have cost you
to be with us those extra months
for the times, the moments we will never forget
and for the words that I still hear in my heart...

Thank you...
